Take it to the dealer immediately and have the service re-done with factory fluids and filter. Give the bill to ez lube. This could be a very expensive problem about to happen.

I had the clutch changed and was told would proably need some gear oil. how do i add gear oil to the 5 speed transmission

Most standard transmissions have a fill plug on the side Plug is usually a good size so that it is not confused with any other bolts. Most oil change places will check and fill the trans as part of a lube oil and filter job.

How to change trans fluid on 1997 Pontiac Grand Am SE 2.4 127000 miles

Don't worry about the lines unless excessive sludge and debris is found during pan removal. Drop the pan, inspect , wipe clean, replace filter and fill with fluid. This service is recommended every 50k.

Hi,I have a 1998 bmw 328 sport and need to know how much oil is required to fill the engine from empty(do an oil service) and also how to top up auto gearbox oil?

fill engine on flat surface, then read the dipstick.

Transmission: raise car. Run car to normal oper temp. while running unscrew top access trans fill screw. nothing should come out. fill it till it is now full.

For dummies: No, there's no trans dip stick. No, unscrew the top access plug while cold and not running....most of it will drain out.

For flat out stupid people, those with an IQ of room temp on a cold day: Take it to jiffy lube so the car doesn't fall on your head and crush it.

It seems like to much of a coincidence that it started after you changed the trans oil. You, or someone may have used the wrong oil. Modern automatics are very sensitive to the exact factory recommended blend. Dump the oil and go to toyota for the recommended lube and start over. Be sure the trans is filled correctly...only up to the hot mark if the trans is hot, not just the engine.

No oil pressure indication at the gauge


The easiest thing to check would be the oil pressure sensor, (this is probably a remove and replace operation) but noisy valves sound like a problem with the oil pump. I would not drive it until you get the problem identified.
